Megyn Kelly said she has no sympathy for Kim Kardashian and her “enormous fake ass” after the reality TV star was booed by fans at a Los Angeles Rams game on Sunday.

Kelly lashed out at Kardashian on her SiriusXM podcast on Tuesday, saying that her “narcissism” and “public persona” were having a detrimental effect on American society.

“I do not feel empathetic toward Kim Kardashian,” Kelly said during her latest episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show.”

“I’ve been going on a tear over her for the past couple of days because every time I open my paper, there she is again, and I find it deeply alarming.”

Kelly added: “What are we celebrating? Her enormous fake ass?”

On her Monday podcast, Kelly said she was glad Kardashian was jeered by football fans at the Rams game at SoFi Stadium. Kelly said the booing was a sign that the country was “getting sick of vain, ‘rules don’t apply to me’ celebrities.”

The former Fox News primetime star said the Kardashians have come to embody “false gods” of “money” and “selfie culture.”

“I don’t think she is a bad person but I hate what she’s come to stand for and what she represents,” Kelly said.

Last month, Kelly lambasted the Kardashian family as a “force for evil” because of their “unrivaled vanity” that she says has fueled a societal “focus on one’s self” and “ego” in pursuit of “clicks” and “likes.”

“They didn’t do it by themselves,” Kelly said on the Sept. 30 edition of her podcast. “But more than any other, they’ve had a terrible effect in that lane.”

“And I do blame them,” she said. “I do.”

The Kardashians’ status as Instagram influencers landed Kim K in trouble earlier this month.

The Securities and Exchange Commission announced that Kardashian was forced to pay around $1.26 million in penalties for using her Instagram page to promote a cryptocurrency asset that some allege is part of a shady “pump and dump” scheme.

Kelly recalled interviewing the Kardashians in 2017 when she was hosting “Megyn Kelly Today” on NBC.

During the NBC segment from 2017, Kelly put the question to “momager” Kris Jenner and her daughters Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.

“Are you a force for good or evil?” Kelly asked the family.

“I think we’ve honestly through our show — we’ve shown so much more positive things,” Kim Kardashian replied, citing stepdad Bruce Jenner’s transition to Caitlyn Jenner.

Kris Jenner also noted that her youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner, was a cosmetics magnate at the tender age of 19 — employing 600 people.

“My little sister has an insane business and anyone who says they don’t want their little kid to be like that and have an insane business at 19 and literally be like so successful is insane to me,” Kendall Jenner told Kelly.

The Kardashians denied that they were promoting unrealistic beauty standards for women and girls.

Kelly, who joined the Peacock Network that year, had the Kardashian family on as guests to mark the 10th anniversary of their E! reality series “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”

They subsequently used their massive online presence to build a multibillion-dollar retail business empire that includes fashion, cosmetics, clothing and accessories.

Kelly added: “I don’t think this is healthy and that’s why I object to — it’s their disgusting vanity which is spread like wildfire in our society.”
